Yoga can be hugely beneficial for women of all ages and stages of life – particularly for mid-life where women undergo significant hormonal changes and where we are often super busy in our caring roles, in our careers etc. Yoga can provide us great nourishment and rest and there is increasing scientific evidence that it benefits the endocrine system making it a very accessible self care practice for the mid-life woman.
Mid life can herald a time of great change. It can present a range of challenges (and opportunities!) for women including significant physical, psychological and emotional changes, as well as changes in our relationships. It can also raise spiritual questions about the meaning of life.
Many women don’t realise that many of these changes are a part of the menopause transition and that if we embrace these changes consciously, with good self-care routines, we not only ride the changes better, we can experience great healing and wisdom.
Many women can experience menopause symptoms quiet early, commonly in their 40’s and into their 50’s, with symptoms such as sleepless nights, erratic mood swings, and feelings of overwhelm. It can be a time of great change. These symptoms can be a gift prompting us to make the lifestyle adjustments and adopt regular self-care practices for a healthy transition into menopause and a healthy second half of life.
There are many holistic strategies particularly from the yogic traditions to help ensure we are able to function well in our lives, with energy and vitality, through mid-life and into old age.
Are you a woman 40+, experiencing significant change in your mid-life transition?
Do you value being busy and multitasking over and above rest and restoration?
Are you feeling overwhelmed and would like to experience more ease in your daily life?
Would you like to understand more about the menopause transition and how to harness the gifts of this powerful life stage?
Then this workshop is for you!

“There is so much silence around a woman’s midlife transition and menopause. Thankfully, this workshop provides a much-needed space for conversation. Jane’s offering is highly professional and deeply sensitive; she gracefully facilitates a safe space for sharing, personal reflection, and physical practice. I highly recommend this workshop to any woman who is moving towards, in the middle, or already leaving, this powerful phase of life. ” Robyn

After working with signs of peri-menopause for the last two years, I realised how much silence there is around this issue. Thankfully, these workshops are providing a much-needed space for conversation. Jane’s offering is highly professional and deeply sensitive; she gracefully facilitates a safe space for sharing, personal reflection, and physical practice. I highly recommend this workshop to any woman who is moving towards, in the middle, or already in, this powerful phase of life.
